Whitley Neill’s has pushed the boundaries again, infusing their award-winning Gin with rhubarb and ginger.

John James Whitley Neill comes from a family of eight generations of distillers, and he is a direct descendant of Thomas Greenall. If you are reading this from just about anywhere in the UK, you might instantly recognize that the Greenall name has been associated with distilling in England — Gin in particular — for 250 years. As a child, he happened upon a cache of bottles in his Grandmother’s storage, all full and labeled with the family name. This experience inspired him to take up the family tradition.

All Whitley Neill Spirits are distilled in a single, small-format, 100-year-old, copper-pot still — the oldest operating still in the UK. They shun the "continuous distillation" process that ramps up volume, choosing to start and finish one batch at a time.

Known for wild experimentation in Gin botanicals, Whitley Neill has developed a dozen unique combinations, each with its own distinct characteristics. Whitley Neill Rhubarb & Ginger Handcrafted Gin builds upon their rock-solid Gin foundation botanicals of juniper, coriander, cassia, orris root, angelica, liquorice, orange, lemon. Then, they add the flourish — in this case that means rhubarb and ginger for a spicy-tart accent. To our taste, it feels like a non-sweet Sloe Gin with a bit of ginger heat.

Smartass Corner:
Rhubarb is one of the most interesting of plants. It’s technically a vegetable that is shaped like celery. But it is most often associated with a tart, crisp flavor like a cross between lemon grass and strawberries.

Tinted Clear

Nose / Aroma / Smell
The fragrance reminds us of rhubarb pie in a pine box with a handful of freshly picked herbs.

Flavor / Taste / Palate
On the palate the rhubarb notes mingle with the rest of the botanicals to deliver a tart apple essence with orange zest, juniper, and a light hit of ginger spice.

Finish
The finish is tart and a bit dry.

While juniper-heavy Gin is perfect for your daily G&T, it is also complemented extremely well by tea flavours such as Earl Grey. Try steeping Earl Grey tea bags in Gin for an hour before mixing it with lemon juice and soda for a refreshing tipple. This one gets you additional kudos, so let’s keep it between us.
Classifications of Gin: London Dry Gin, Plymouth Gin, Old Tom Gin, Genever or Dutch, New Western or new American or International style.
Hardcore Gin lovers say the word Martini should never be preceded by Vodka, lobster, or pomegranate. They say the original and the only real Martini consists of Gin, Vermouth & olives, period!
Juniper berry is the main ingredient of Gin. They are usually picked wild by independent workers throughout Europe and sold via distributors to Gin makers worldwide.
How much Tonic is in a Gin & Tonic? The ideal proportions for a perfect Gin & Tonic is one part Gin and two parts Tonic.
Gin gets its dominant flavour from juniper berries. As with many other spirits, Gin was originally intended to be used as medicine. Yeah right!
